Raytheon is being awarded an $83 million contract for the design, test and deployment of the Barracuda mine neutralization system.  

The Barracuda mine neutralization system is an expendable, autonomous unmanned underwater vehicle intended to identify and neutralize bottom, near surface and drifting sea mines.  It will field a shallow water capability and be an expendable modular neutralizer consisting of a kill mechanism, propulsion, sensors, and communications buoy that enables wireless communication to the deployment platform, US Department of Defense said in a statement Tuesday.

This contract includes options which, if exercised, would bring the cumulative value of this contract to $362 million.  Work is expected to be completed by November 2022.
